Entry: ":o)"

Happy Weekend my friends! I mentioned in a previous blog that I had two doctors appointments scheduled for this week while I was on vacation that were sort of making me a bit nervous and not able to relax and enjoy my vacation fully. On Monday I went for a CT scan and the doctors took a scan of my abdomen and pelvic region. Apparently a few weeks ago during a recent exam that was triggered from me having a dizzy spell and almost passing out, the doc discovered a bit of blood in my urine. All my other tests came back normal, even the heart tests, the EKG thingy, all my bloodwork came back as good or near perfect. No signs of diabetes or heart disease, both of which run in my family. While microscopic amounts of blood in a person's urine is apparently nothing to become alarmed about, the doctor decided that he wanted to run more tests to see if they could discover where the source of the blood in my urine was coming from. Thats' why I had to do the CT scan, which I just learned today came back as perfect as perfect can be. Thats' extremely great news for me, as a brutha was getting a bit anxious waiting for the results. This morning I went for my other scheduled exam, this time to see the urologist. That exam went well also and found nothing that would indicate a problem. In other words, a brutha just received an excellent bill of health and was told that there was no need to worry about the blood since it was microscopic and in such a small quantity. Next year I will be re-examined for the same issue to see if it is still there or more than likely will have gone away by then.

I especially want to thank my buddies who stopped and sent me prayers and messages of concern and support, you guys certainly helped to ease a brutha's run-a-way imagination, I was conjuring up all sorts of dire scenarios in my mind...LOL

Now that my spirits have returned back to my normal hi-octane self, I'm about to go get it on for the weekend!! I hope all of you have been well and enjoying yourselves to the max. I'm ready to go have some fun now. Let's do this!!! :o)

Have a gravy weekend everybody!
God is so good to me!
~peace~

shocked Oh, I didn't stop by last week & had no idea you were having health issues! I'm so glad though to know that you were given' a clean bill & that all is well. You're right, God is Good! Take care Greggy & STAY HEALTHY!

France, my friend don't blame yourself for not knowing...I am the one who did not share much of what I was going through until just recently. Anyway, thankfully it turned out to be NOT serious or at least they were not able to offer an explanation as to the what, the why, the how, or the if...In the process though I did get certified with a pretty respectable bill of health so I'm smiling and feeling great now. Thank you much for the concern my friend. Hope you are done with the stormy weather down there, yes? have a good day France...G

I'm most pleased that you have been stamped with the all clear and that you have had this worry lifted from your shoulders. Doctor stuff is always stressful, they are so scary with all their machines and odd language. Have a laughter filled, good music, great company weekend smile

Thanks Meadow, I am most pleased also smile The one doctor was starting to spew all this technical medical mumbo-jumbo until I told him to break it down in 'greggy-speak"...lol. I'm a very relaxed individual now, thanks for stopping by with your vibes! Have a great day Meadow...G
